I don't drink cows milk. I stopped because it started to make me smell. Does anyone know anything about this? Was it just a build up of something and now it's gone? It got the point where even the small amount in a cup of tea resulted in a sort of dairy/baby smell 20 mins later. I had a cup not long ago and it didn't make me smell though. Any thoughts?
I don't drink it either. I have some kind of intolerance to it - it does bad things to my digestion - and I now have soya milk instead. I find the smell of cow's milk quite unpleasant (I always have done) and am very sensitive to the smell of it on other people, especially on their breath. My impression is that once one becomes sensitized to a particular smell, either on oneself or on others, it can be very hard to dislodge that sensitivity.
Yes I don't like the smell unless it's very fresh when it hardly smells of anything. I use soya milk too.
I do eat cheese and yoghurt though with no problems. I don't have any digestion problems that I'm aware of, I just smell! My grandmother was Chinese and I wonder if that has got anything to do with it.
Yep, other people could smell it on me. However, if I drank milk today I know it wouldn't happen which is what makes me think it's a build up thing, and I've had time to clear it out. It's been about 8 years since I stopped regularly having cows milk.
